Course content

The School Direct Primary route gives you the chance to learn ‘on the job’ in a school and you will work as part of the teaching team from day one – learning from experienced, practising colleagues and immediately putting your new skills into practice.

This option is perfect if you are either already working in a school without QTS (e.g. Teaching Assistants), if you are a university graduate or a career changer looking to get into teaching by 'learning on the job'.

Fees and funding

Throughout the year you will receive training and mentoring enabling you to work towards Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). This is perfect if you are already working in a school without QTS or thinking of a career change.

In our London partnership, candidates are employed by the host school for the duration of the programme and paid on the unqualified teachers’ scale. There is a fee of £7000 payable either through salary sacrifice or personally by the candidate.

Our programme in the north of England is unsalaried but student loans can be used to cover the cost of the fees; maintenance loans are available; and you may also be able to get extra financial support if you have children or other caring responsibilities. See https://getintoteaching.education.gov.uk/funding-your-training#tuition-fee-and-maintenance-loans for more information.
